It’s time of year again ladies and gents! The biggest gaming event of the year is almost upon us. The Electronics Entertainment Expo, the Super Bowl of gaming, will take place this coming week from Tuesday June 10 to Thursday June 12 at the Los Angeles Convention Center. As always the event is not open to the public but thousands of dedicated games press members will be on hand to try and cover the plethora of games and hardware on display. We were not lucky enough at here at The Young Folks to be able to attend but we will be bring you the latest trailers as well as our reactions to the biggest news out of the show.
Don’t be fooled by the official conference dates, the good stuff actually starts on Monday June 9. Microsoft, Sony, EA, and Ubisoft will have their traditional big press conferences on Monday. Nintendo has opted out of a traditional press conference this year and will hold a “Digital Event” Tuesday morning. We expect this even to be similar to the Nintendo Direct streams the company holds regularly but with (hopefully) much bigger announcements. Below you can find a list of the conference schedule and links to the easiest places to catch the live streams of each event.
Microsoft: Monday, June 9 at 9:30 a.m. PST at xbox.com
EA: Monday, June 9 at 12 p.m. PST at ea.com/e3
Ubisoft: Monday, June 9 at 3 p.m. PST at blog.ubi.com

In addition to the company sites for the first time ever Twitch will be serving as the official streaming platform for the conference so if you’re a Twitch user just head over to twitch.tv and you can watch every single press conference in one spot. Twitch will also be streaming more in depth looks at specific games including a number of unannounced titles from big name publishers like Bethesda, Deep Silver, Crytek, and Square Enix.
